Copperplate, Slate, and Swatches


Here are some swatches from my MMBB samples:

I also bought Covergirl's Gel Eyeliner in "Slate" which I just absolutely love! It's better than black eyeliner to me for a softer smoky look or for lining the eyes without looking so dramatic. Also a good dupe for some of MAC's eyeliners, and it DOES stay on!

The "slate" swatch:

I also played with my Matte2 eyeshadow in "Copperplate", another great eyeshadow to make a softer smoky look or for everyday wear. I used it to outline my crease.

Another item I am selling, BRAND NEW MAC eyeshadow in "Seedy Pearl":

hey nessa,
i was wondering if you were still having a problem with milia? if so, i think you should DEFINITELY try out northwest orca soap's green papaya enzyme mask. i've been using it and it's pretty much gotten ridden of all my milia. :] just thought i'd share.

Hey Christiana! oOoh that just sounds so heavenly! I checked out their site $15/jar not bad...I should try it out! I don't have milia anymore, i've been using Oil of Olay and my astringent and so far it's been clear skin (thank goodness!). But I do want to try that mask out!

Is the CG Slate a jar or the gel pencils? I couldn't locate them in the site, just the pencils... so I'm a little thrown off on the jar liquid on the pic hehe

Thanks :)

Vanessa said...

The CG eyeliner I got is a pencil, that jar is the indelible gel eyeliner that arrived with my mineral samples... :)
